The Stride Center doesn’t just train its students in IT – it prepares them in every aspect for a new career. Stride understands the barriers students face to finding a good job. That’s why we know technical training is not enough. Stride operates a “high touch” program; students meet with advisors every other week throughout their training to keep in touch and discuss skills beyond technology. They’ll discuss, for instance, how to build a resume or act professionally. Please click on a photo below to see what students and graduates are saying about The Stride Center.
